The tour was worth it! Three hours with one of the most knowledgeable tour guides I have ever met. We took the three hour, afternoon tour and saw the homes of members of the Rolling Stones, Hendrix's apartment, Paige's house and so on. Tour culminated with a stop at Abbey Road. Despite not wanting to look like a super-tourist, the tour guide snapped a quick picture for us, which I am very grateful for!
Nora was an amazing tour guide ! She was knowledgable and made the tour so much fun! A must do in London! I think she went Above and beyond to make this tour memorable. There's so much history in London it was great to be led by a mini van instead of the walking tour. And Abbey road!!! Awesome!
Our tour guide was Mike from Chicago. The highlight of course was crossing Abbey Road and taking photos. Overall tour was great - so many points of interest noting homes of Brain Epstein, Jimmy Hendrix, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Mama Cass Also a final stop at the London Hard Rock Cafe (the very first one) and how it all started. Great tour, would highly recommend it. Mike provides many interesting stories of Rock stars.
Our trip was great! we really enjoyed our Abbey Road Beatles Walking tour. Our guide was great. We had just arrived the day before and we did not really have our bearings. He made sure that at the end of the tour, we knew how to get ourselves back to our hotel. We loved walking through the neighborhoods, seeing Carnaby Street and the Beatle sights that were in London. It felt as though we were on a very personalized tour, not a "canned" tour script, Thank you very much.
I booked this tour for nine of us for my Husbands 50th Birthday. It was brilliant we all had such a great afternoon. Our tour guide really good and was very informative. We had plenty of time to view all the locations The Abbey Road crossing was my favourite part of the afternoon we couldn't stop laughing at the impatient drivers while we were taking photos on the crossing. The mini bus was very comfortable and the tour guide was a good driver. I would recommend this tour to anyone who loves music, very enjoyable
We did the afternoon tour and really enjoyed it. Saw parts of London we hadn't been to before, and got the rock history. Great stop at Sticky Fingers Pub, and Abbey Road, of course!
We did the daytrip and loved it. Our guide brought pop/rock history alive, with Tin Pan Alley, Abbey Road (studio) and the houses of McCartney and Jagger and the the pub Sticky Fingers with the golden records of the Stones and the guitars of Bill Wyman. Absolutely Fabulous!
Very informative tour. Special thanks for taking us past lourdes as we wouldnt have got to see it otherwise. Oh and past robbie williams house was an extra bonus. Highlight was walking on Abbey road Thanks guys
Excellent tour, taking us to some places that figure in rock's history (Freddy Mercury's house, Abbey Road, where Jimi Hendrix died, etc.). Tour guide was irreverant and knowledgeable. Small group made the tour worthwhile. Only criticism - would have liked a little more time off the van at Abbey Road, and at some other places.
Good fun! Highlights for me was Abbey Road crosswalk, the bathroom window (she came in through...), Jimmy Paige house, basement where Jimmy Hendrix od'd, + lots more. Tour guide(sorry, can't remember name) did great job too - thanks!
Better than expected. Well worth it for 'ANY' music fan. My only compaint would be having to dodge traffic on Abbey road, but thats not the guides fault
My husband and I loved this tour. Very relaxed, very informative such fun crossing Abbey Road and seeing all the beautiful houses in London and the amazing small side streets.

Doing what: Celebrity Tour of London
Takes you to the parts of London that you'd never normally visit as a tourist. Saw lots of swanky houses and impressive streets, where the likes of Simon Cowell and Sir Paul McCatrtney live. Highlight was crossing over Abbey Road to re-enact the famous Beatles CD cover, which was lots of fun! Our guide was great and helped with taking lots of pictures for us (much to the annoyance of the oncoming traffic!)
Chicago Mike was such an amazing guy! He was funny and well-informed and made the tour really interactive. Totally worth it. I learned so much, it was so much more than just Abbey Road and The Beatles.
We really enjoyed the rock tour. Pat, our tour guide was both funny and entertaining. In addition to the highlights of the tour, he also pointed out some celebrity houses such as J.K. Rowling, Simon Cowell, Madonna, and many more. I felt that the time flew by. One thing though, we were told during the tour that you can look yourself up on the Abbey Road Live Cams on-line by remembering the date and time of the crossing but when I got back home, I tried and I couldn't figure it out. I think it would be worth while for you to start investigating this part before your trip so you can be more prepared.
